Dr David Lovell-Smith – Doctor

I have practised in Hillmorton for 32 years and made many friends here. While I use all the standard medical treatments, I am also enthusiastic about finding innovative ways to help the body restore itself. I am interested in diet and particularly in the way we eat. In 2006 I was fortunate to receive a Senior Health Research Scholarship. This allowed me to pursue further studies, graduating with a PhD in 2010. I continue to write and publish in this area and teach 4th year medical students in my role as Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Christchurch School of Medicine.

I also have a particular interest in Maharishi Ayurveda, a reformulation of the ancient system of health from India, and I am an experienced teacher of Transcendental Meditation www.enjoytm.co.nz I have published a book “Perfect Blood Pressure - Naturally” (Penguin 2001) www.perfectbloodpressure.com

When not seeing patients I enjoy singing in choirs, playing piano, dancing (social ballroom), gardening, reading, meditating and pottering around in my workshop.

We have a top team here at HillMed Health and I am proud to be part of it.
